When we contemplated the proper name for an Alpine style cheese, mountains and travel first came to our thoughts. To get anywhere from our farm we cross at least one mountain. One we traverse often is Royer Mountain, and we chose that as the name for this cellar-aged cheese. Our mountains are nothing like the Alps, neither is our cheese like any other. Closely watching the temperature and turning the cheese weekly brought us a flavor that is full of zest and mountain breezes blowing through our fresh green pastures. Our aging process gives this cheese an Italian twist with a romano flavor, so perhaps it is the Italian Alps? We love the sharp and yet smooth texture of this cheese.
